2019 Gnarly Dudes Shiraz
Gnarly Dudes, An unctuous yet classic Barossa Valley Shiraz
“I’m the Dude, so that’s what you call me. That or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino, if you’re not into the whole brevity thing.” – The Dude, The Big Lebowski
Deep black on black
Lovely lifted notes of fig, blackcurrant, fresh cedar, liquorice and tar waft from the glass.
The texture is caressing and coats all your taste receptors on your tongue, this wine is so damn drinkable, its jumps out of the glass and leaps down your throat.
I love the soft nature here, it really lift you up and take you for a ride, the finish is very clean and the tannin reverberate across the late palate, this is very seamless as all the acid, fruit and tannins work together to make this a very rewarding experience, this balance will lead to maturation point of 8 to 10 years but if very enjoyable as a young wine – MT
